Heartwings Love Notes 850 - Praise for Garlic, a Miraculous Medicinal Food

Heartwings says, "Not all medicine comes from the drugstore."

It wasn't until I began doing research on herbs I realized that I had all kinds of medicine right in my kitchen. As I did more reading, I
discovered all kinds of foods could be used to address various physical complaints and to prevent me and my family from getting
sick in the first place. However it became quite clear to me that of all the various foods I studied, garlic was probably the most
effective and easily available medicinal substance of all. Regular consumption of garlic is a great help in keeping us healthy.

Sadly, the odor garlic produces in those who consume it has kept people from making use of it. This is too bad. Garlic is a
remarkable healer and raw garlic, while pungent, has really amazing healing properties. Antibiotic and antiviral in its raw form as
well, it can kill a virus or bacteria on contact. If you want to keep your breath fresh, chew up a few sprigs of parsley and you won't
have to worry about offending anyone. Also, If you have a pimple anoint it with a piece of cut garlic several times a day. In a couple
of days it will be gone. Also, if your young child or grandchild has a cold, try rubbing their feet with a piece of cut garlic.

I once had a dreadful sinus infection and couldn't breathe through my nose for several weeks. In desperation, I tried these Garlic
Nose Drops. Squeeze 1 or 2 garlic cloves into a small cup. Cover with about three teaspoons of warm water. Stir and let it settle.
Fill a dropper using only the clear liquid on top. Put your head back and drop about 10 drops in each nostril. Sniff. Pinch your nose
closed. You might feel as though the op of your head was going to explode. It is not so much painful but intense. If you do this twice
a day for three days your sinuses will most likely clear and you will be able to breathe again. Though I haven't had to use it for some
time it worked for me every time I tried it.

Here is a delicious recipe you might enjoy, especially as the weather cools.


1 medium sized cauliflower

6 or more cloves garlic, minced

˝ cup celery chopped very small or minced

2 Tbs. good olive oil

2 cups rich chicken or vegetable broth

2 cups water

˝ teaspoon salt

Pepper to taste

1/3 or more cup freshly chopped parsley

Method: Cut up cauliflower center stalk and break flowerets into pieces. Cook cauliflower in a small amount of water until tender. In
large saucepan, put olive oil, celery and garlic, sauté briefly. Add chicken broth, parsley and water. Bring to a boil and simmer for
ten minutes or so. Add cooked cauliflower and the water it cooked in. Put several ladlefuls of soup into blender and puree. Add back
into soup and cook on low for another 10 or 15 minutes or store for later use. If you prefer your soup chunkier, simply mash the
cauliflower with a potato masher.

May you stay healthy and happy as the days grow colder.
